About the property

Apartment 10A Alexander Street, The Old Village, Vilamoura. 2 Bedroom (sleeps 4) situated in beautiful landscaped gardens near beach, marina & golf

The apartment is situated on the ground floor, with easy access to all the splendid facilities of The Old Village, and is ideal for the less mobile or young families.

There are 2 bedrooms which will sleep a maximum of 4 persons (including children and infants) and 1 bathroom with toilet, sink and a bath (with shower over).

In the open plan living room there are 2 leather sofas which provide comfortable seating for 4, with a table and chairs in the dining area. 2 sets of French Doors open onto the south facing terrace and garden area which is furnished with a table, chairs and parasol.

The kitchen has an electric cooker, washing machine and fridge (with freezer compartment) and a kettle, toaster & filter coffee machine. It is also well equipped with a wide range of utensils.

Also in the living room there is an air-conditioning unit for summer use, which also provides heat in the cooler months, and a log burning stove for winter use. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and oil filled radiators are used to provide heating when necessary.

WiFi Internet access is available in the apartment at no extra cost and the television has a wide range of European TV channels available, including all the main UK, SKY & BT Sport channels. There is a DVD player & a Radio/CD player with a good selection of DVD's & CD's & also a small library of books for all ages to enjoy.

The apartment has been completely refurbished to a high standard and has been granted a Touristic Licence, by the Portuguese government, to accommodate a maximum of 4 persons & is therefore subject to regulations to maintain a high standard of accommodation & safety for our guests.

The Old Village architecture is based on the 18th Century classical buildings of southern Portugal with 2 and 3 storey houses and apartments, painted in traditional pastel colours, in a lovely garden setting with calcader paved walkways leading to the 3 swimming pools, children's play area, the supermarket and the various bars and restaurants. As the Old Village is pedestrianised there are dedicated parking areas for vehicles around the perimeter of the complex.

Our agent is on-site should you wish to book car or cycle hire, coach trips or other activities & is available to answer any queries you may have during your stay. There is also the re-assurance of 24 hour security coverage in The Old Village.

For keen golfers there are superb golf courses close by, with the Pinhal Course surrounding the complex. The Old Village Tours & Transfers company is based in the complex and transport to the golf courses, the local towns and other places of interest, may be booked online or at their office.

About Patricia Roberts

My husband and I are retired and live in Norfolk, which is a lovely area of the UK. We have a large family who have all enjoyed the benefits of our holiday home in the Old Village and continue to do so.

Patricia Roberts purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Patricia Roberts chose Vilamoura

I was introduced to, and fell in love with, the beautiful surroundings of the Old Village by friends who have had a holiday home there since it was first built. In 2003 I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the apartment. It has been well used by family and friends over the years and my husband and I have enjoyed our long visits at different times of the year. We have made a number of friends in the area, of various nationalities, either visitors like us or permanent residents. These friends have shown us parts of the Algarve and the Alentajo region, away from the tourist areas, that we would not have explored on our own.

What makes this apartment unique

When we are staying in the apartment in the warmer months, we love to have our breakfast outside on the south facing terrace. Depending on the time of year there are Swallows swooping about the gardens, Blackbirds and Hoopoe's looking for worms or Storks gently circling in the sky. The 3 swimming pools on the complex provide relaxation or exercise, plus fun for the children. During the cooler months we make good use of the woodburning stove which heats the apartment very efficiently. We collect pine cones from around the local golf course to supplement the logs that we buy from the supermarket. The apartment has been completely refurbished and has air-conditioning. Now that we are becoming a little less mobile, we are thankful that we have a ground floor apartment!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We again found the apartment very clean and well maintained, excellent location and very restful. We would stop there always when in Portugal. Thanks again

Fabulous Fabulous Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located on the beautiful Old Village estate in Vilamoura. It is tastefully furnished and ideal for small family or two sets of couples. 5 secibd walk to supermarket which is comprehensively stocked. Garden terrace faces south. All mod cons but no full size freezer but with shop so close you don't really need it. Ice box in fridge does provide ice for drinks. Great washing machine if like us we take small bags and wash while we are there. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We are returning next year and 2019 we loved it so much.

Beautiful apartment and spotlessly clean.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I contacted Patricia about booking her lovely apartment she was really helpful.

Excellent driving directions and loads of information about the apartment itself. We arrived at 9.30pm , security were watching for us ,as the office was closed ,and let us straight in to the apartment where the provisions we had requested had been delivered.

The apartment was clean and homely and the bed was firm and very comfortable. There are more than enough pots/pans and plates to facilitate self catering and (this is a first !) they didn't need to be washed before use.

The weather was 19 degrees by day but, obviously, cold in the evening which Patricia had told us and arranged for security to switch on the oil-filled heater to warm the rooms for our arrival. The air con/heating also worked perfectly.

There were no restaurants open in the Old Village but this was not a problem as we had hired a car and there were a selection open in Vilamoura a 5 minute drive away. The garden was great for a coffee in the morning and a little sun trap in the summer.

Thank you for your hospitality Patricia , I had a lovely Birthday weekend .

We will definitely be returning !

Best wishes,
